Just so you know, these are going to be spoiler free!!!
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is about this girl named Cassie Sullivan and the world is invaded by aliens! And they aren’t like Daemon Black kinda aliens, they are like full on, evil aliens that want to take over the world! And in this world, the aliens create “waves”: first wave, “Lights Out” second wave “Surfs Up” third wave “Pestilence” fourth wave “Silencer” and the fifth wave is yet to be determined. Then she meets the swoon-worthy Evan Walker and once she meets him, the big question is, “Is he an alien or isn’t he?” But the biggest plot line in this story, is trying to save her little brother, Sammy.
This book is in three perspectives. The first, to start off, is Cassie’s, then Sammy’s, then Ben Parish’s (Cassie’s crush before the invasion).
The plot in Ben’s POV is that, while he is at Wright Patterson, he figures out that they are forming an army out of children against the people (you will have to figure out why ;) and he has to stop it.
There is no real plot in Sammy’s POV because he was taken to Wright Patterson as well and he stays with Ben.
Overall I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars! This was such an amazing read with a great amount of action and romance. I loved this story and how it was put together it was so amazing and fantastic and it is definitely one of my favorite reads of 2014! Amazing job, Rick!!
The next book, The Infinite Sea, comes out on September 16th, 2014.
There is also going to be a movie, casting Chloe Mortez as Cassie, Alex Roe as Evan and Nick Robinson as Ben! So excited, fangirling so hard right now!!!! AHHHHHH!!
I love you all so much! Bye!
